I have been teaching guitar making ("lutherie") since I began teaching on the guitar making class at London Metropolitan University in early 2015. Now I also teach privately from my workshop in Bristol.
I enjoy guiding students through the process of making a guitar from scratch right up until the finished instrument. I believe this is one of the most rewarding experiences anyone can have. To see several pieces of roughly hewn wood slowly take shape into a beautiful instrument is almost magical!
Lesson are £40 per hour (minimum 2 hour sessions). Longer courses are also available, please contact me for more information.
Students have access to my own timber store for their instrument, or alternatively may wish to obtain their own materials.
I teach on weekdays, and I'm flexible on timings to suit your requirements. If you would like to book a lesson please enquire via email or telephone.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
